NGC 7635 - The Bubble nebula
Distance 1400 Ly
Telescope 12" f/5.3
EP 14mm Delos x114 (TFoV 38')
Astronomic OIII filter
This was the second attempt to observe this little nebula, a few weeks ago in near perfect transparency in nearly 21.6 skies I couldn't see it. Last night I observed from the same location with fairly poor transparency and the Bubble was clear to see?!!
The nebula appeared to curl itself around a central star, uniform brightness, a narrow point at one end widening and fading the further it went out.
I tried both NPB and OIII filters, the OIII seemed to pick out the fainter nebulosity slightly better.
